Hi @mahesh.

 

From a review of your case, it appears your issue was resolved by the License Management team by extending the expiration date of your license.  If this is an accurate understanding, please mark this post as the Accepted Solution for the benefit of others on the community.

Hello,

 

It looks like your license file has disappeared. If you fix it, then most probably your instance will fire up correctly.

Hi @mahesh.

 

Also, in the log snippet provided by Constantine, is this error:

 

Storage anchor break found

 

This could indicate corruption in the trusted storage.  If that is the case, we will most likely need to create a case for this issue in order to schedule a WebEx for troubleshooting the issue.

 

Do you currently have a license file located in \ThingworxPlatform?  Even though the log indicates the file name is license.bin, it should actually be license_capability_response.bin if you are running ThingWorx 8.1 or above.

 

License file missing. It's expected at path : C:\ThingworxPlatform\license.bin

 

Please provide a screenshot of the contents of the \ThingworxPlatform folder so we can determine how best to proceed.

 

Regards.

we have also tried by put the license file with name license_capability_response.bin but it ignored the license and gives the same error. the license file get renamed to ignored_license_capability_response.bin.

Re: Migrating all data and entities from one thingworx instance to another when thingworx not runnin

Hi,

 

Can you check if the license file has device id = 

a4b0f1c6-d295-4ad9-9d3b-525f7dcbf8f5

It is possible that the device id from the license file to be different than the one on the platform.

You can download a new license file for device id = a4b0f1c6-d295-4ad9-9d3b-525f7dcbf8f5 , copy it in ThingworxPlatform, rename it to license_capability_response.bin and restart Tomcat.

 

Best regards,

Re: Migrating all data and entities from one thingworx instance to another when thingworx not runnin

Hi @mahesh.

 

I think we need to open a case for this.  There could be a few different things going on and a case would be the quickest way to resolve it as we could then schedule a WebEx for hands on troubleshooting.  Please let me know if this works for you and I will open the case on your behalf.

 

Regards.
